Agricultural trade is an engine for economic growth, yet many countries lack the competence and confidence to negotiate market access effectively. Access requires compliance with a set of phytosanitary measures imposed by the importing country. However, by following a structured process, negotiations can move beyond simple compliance to a more mutually beneficial solution. Beyond Compliance: A Production Chain Framework for Plant Health Risk Management in Trade provides a series of decision support tools that can be used to manage and demonstrate plant health risk management. The tools, developed within a production chain framework and Systems Approach, were developed using real trade cases in Southeast Asia. The project aimed to support national plant protection organisations and trade negotiators seeking to ensure safe trade with more risk-proportionate and suitable risk management plans. The Beyond Compliance project was funded by the Standards and Trade Development Facility, a global partnership established by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the World Bank, the World Health Organization, the World Organisation for Animal Health and the World Trade Organization.

The unmitigated pest risk potential for the importation of Pinus and Abies logs from all states of Mexico into the United States was assessed by estimating the probability and consequences of establishment of representative insects and pathogens of concern. Twenty-two individual pest risk assessments were prepared for Pinus logs, twelve dealing with insects and ten with pathogens. Six individual assessments were prepared for Abies logs. The selected organisms were representative examples of insects and pathogens found on the bark, in the bark, and in the wood of Pinus or Abies logs. Among the insects and pathogens assessed for Mexican pines, eight (Dendroctonus mexicanus, Coptotermes crassus, Pterophylla beltrani, Ips bonanseai, Gnathotrichus perniciosus, Gnathotrichus nitidifrons, Fusarium subglutinans f. sp. pini, and Ophiostoma spp.) were rated a high risk potential. A moderate pest risk potential was assigned to nine other organisms or groups of organisms including Pineus spp., Lophocampa alternata, Hylesia frigida, Hypoderma spp., Lophodermella spp., Synanthedon cardinalis, Heterobasidion annosum, Sphaeropsis sapinea, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, Cronartium spp., and Peridermium spp. The pests of concern with a moderate or high pest risk potential for Abies logs include Lophocampa alternata, Scolytus mundus, S. aztecus, Pseudohylesinus variegatus, P. magnus, Ophiostoma abietinum, and Heterobasidion annosum. For those organisms of concern that are associated with Mexican Pinus and Abies logs, specific phytosanitary measures may be required to ensure the quarantine safety of proposed importations.

Pest management for vegetable crops and safety provision for the pollinators is a challenging task in the context to increase vegetable productivity without upsetting the ecological balance. The book Pests and Pollinators of Vegetable and Oilseed Crops aims to integrate and develop pest control strategies by minimizing their impact on beneficial insect species such as natural enemies and pollinators for enhancing fruit production and quality. A detailed account is provided on pests and pollinators of oilseed crops such as Cruciferous, Solanaceous, Umbelliferous, Cucurbitaceous, Malvaceous, Leguminous and Alliaceae. The compilation of this book is unique as it does not deal only with the conventional way of pest management for different crops; it takes into consideration the role of pollinators and their profitable utilization in the larger context of ecologically based pest management and safety of pollinators. An exemplary attempt is made to promote a large, diverse, sustainable and dependable bee pollinator workforce that can meet the challenges of optimizing food production in the twenty-first century and beyond.

An understanding of international plant health management is essential in the increasingly free-trade environment of today. And administrative methods of plant pest control are of growing importance in crop production. No other recent book introduces students and practitioners to the subject of plant health and quarantine as this one does. Topics covered include: international photsanitary controls; the EU plant health regime; structure and operation of national plant protection organizations; eradication and containment; certification and marketing schemes; indexing, diagnosis and pest risk analysis.
